Voted as one of the two “best apps for domestic violence prevention” last year, the Aspire News App is a potentially life-saving app that allows victims of abuse to call for help at the touch of a button. The app contains summaries of top stories in world, sports, and entertainment news powered by Yahoo! It is available for download on iPhone and Android smartphone devices.
Additionally, if someone you know is in an abusive relationship – or if that someone is you – the Help section of the application contains resources for victims of domestic violence.
Please Note: This app does not serve as a replacement for emergency services – in any situation where you feel that you may be at risk, please dial 911 or your local emergency number.

The Aspire Curriculum helped me get educated on Domestic Violence, and helped me get out of my poor living situation.
I am so thankful for the Aspire Initiative, and all the free resources available.
A friend of mine was in need of guidance through an abusive relationship. I got educated on the topic to help guide her to a better way of living.
I lead support groups for victims of domestic violence. I often start new clients by showing them the Aspire Curriculum and News App, which all have found very resourceful.
